Got a set of rims with tubliss system in them but the front wheel really bounces quite a bit feels like it is out of round. Wondering if anyone else has experienced this or found a fix for it. Checked to make sure the bead was seated and see if the rim is bent but it all looks good.
Any ideas appreciated.

Ya. Short of using weights, using 4 to 6 fl oz of Quad Boss tire sealant in the tire will settle it down quite a bit.

But you can get some great weights here: http://stores.ebay.com/THE-REUSABLE-SPOKE-WEIGHT-STORE

Thanks for that link Greenboy ! thumb
Have Tubliss on the rear of mine, with recommended amount/type sealant, but used stick on wheel weights, which don't last long after frequent mud baths and rinses.

I don't even use weights on the back -- seems like 10oz of Quad Boss sealant took care of any imbalance back there. In the front where it probably matters more I used 5 or 6 oz and I could barely feel any oscillation, and two 1oz re-usable weights got that smooth -- so much better than it ever was with balanced Michelin AC10. The combination of all the above with Mitas E-07 does so well on the twisties and in town that it's almost shocking what they do at Tubliss pressures off-road! I'll never go back to knobbies for this area.

I've ordered some wheel weights and have green slime in the wheels but still bounces. I put 3 oz of spoke weights on the front to balance it out it seems better but will need to fine tune it a bit I think. If not will go back to tubes. Anyone fill the bead lock hole in the rim before thinking about using a two part aluminum mixture for that.

So, how does the tubliss system holds pressure for you? That concern is the only thing keeping me away from purchasing a set...

Seems like the back is going from 110psi to 100 after about a week though temperature is dropping so that may make the latter reading a little lower than it would be otherwise. The front needs a refill a day or two earlier.

The day they (Tubliss) produce a reliable hi-pressure tube, will swing the tide. Fortunately the one I have done (on the rear) takes almost 3 months to leak from 110 down to 80 psi. Not great, but no where near as bad as some. Found a 100psi status cap thingy to keep an eye on it. Works great. It's the one that goes from green to red as the pressure drops.
